The Exchange automotive repair facilities are now offering a free inspection of POVs to verify that lights, windshield wipers and tires meet acceptable functional standards.
All Exchange automotive repair facilities are offering a free inspection of privately owned vehicles (POVs) to verify that lights, windshield wipers and tires meet acceptable functional standards. All POVs brought to Exchange-Europe Car Care Centers for normal servicing will be checked for these standards as well.
The International Motor Vehicle Lighting Equipment Program will be conducted during October 2017. The purpose of the program is to make motor vehicle owners aware of the importance of maintaining vehicle safety features in good condition at all times.
This program is conducted each year during the fall season to correct deficiencies prior to the more hazardous winter driving season.
“When the seasons change, and we’re getting the road surfaces that are colder and possibly wet with rain or snow, and combined with the high speeds on the Autobahn, we have to ensure our vehicles are safe, reliable and ready for the driving conditions,” said Lt. Col. Tom Davison, Deputy Commander of the Exchange Europe and Southwest Asia.
“We are being proactive and promote preparation now, and the Exchange wants to provide that head-start for our Soldiers, Airmen, and their families,” Davison said.
Any labor or parts necessary for correcting deficiencies will be charged at the normal rate. The Exchange automotive repair teams will provide a ‘Lighting Equipment Passed’ sticker affixed to the top center of the windshield on all vehicles passing the inspection (on customer approval).
“All Exchange automotive repair facilities in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands will take part of this program through Oct. 31, 2017,” said Davidson.
